Reason For Birmingham vs Rotherham Predictions

  • Rotherham have lost seven of nine visits to Birmingham, while they’ve won one of 15 league clashes overall
  • Birmingham have won 10 of their last 14 clashes with newly-promoted sides
  • Aitor Karanka has claimed three wins as a manager against Rotherham, two of which finished 1-0

It’s been a dull but solid start for Birmingham, who have four points from two games despite opening with some tricky fixtures against promotion contenders. Things should get easier for the Blues here, as they have a great record against Rotherham.

Birmingham have lost one of their last 15 league meetings with Rotherham (W8 D6) and come into this one as worth favourites after back to back clean sheets. Meanwhile, the visitors lost at home to Millwall last time out.

Rotherham have lost seven of their last nine away league matches against Birmingham (W1 D1) and as a newly-promoted side they are at a disadvantage here. Birmingham haven’t lost a league match against a newly-promoted side since February 2018 against Millwall and are 14 games unbeaten since (W10 D4). As a result, we think the Blues are good value for the points.

Birmingham boss Aitor Karanka’s three previous home Championship matches against Rotherham have all been victories without conceding a goal in 2014/15 (2-0), 2015/16 (1-0) and 2018/19 (1-0). Given that and the fact that the pair have seen a combined three goals in four league games, our correct score prediction is a 1-0 home win.
